I went to see a dentist about getting Invisalign. He says I am a good candidate but doesn’t use the Invisalign brand. He prefers another one which he says gives him better treatment options. My question is, do other brands work as well or should I find a dentist who is trained in Invisalign?
While Invisalign was the first brand of invisible braces and it has the most name recognition, there are other brands that work very well. Dr. Marion prefers one of those other brands for his patients as well, though he doesn’t have anything against Invisalign.
He prefers the other brand for two reasons. First, the cost is less. That savings is passed onto his patients. Another reason is control. He gets more options to change treatment. This also benefits his patients. While many times treatment goes just the way it should be, our bodies are all unique and respond differently to the same treatments. When things aren’t going according to plan, the dentist needs the freedom to make the changes necessary to get things on track.
A Second Cosmetic Benefit of Invisible Braces
Everyone knows invisible braces will straighten your teeth. However, there is a second benefit that many patients never learn about. The clear aligners are so well-fitted to your teeth that they can double as teeth whitening trays. This will allow you to straighten and whiten your teeth simultaneously. This is like getting a mini smile makeover.
